Covid-19 Update From the Public Health Agency: "Given the high numbers of cases and dramatic increase in community transmission, schools are now seeing increased numbers of staff and pupils who test positive for the virus as school infection levels reflect those in the local community."During this challenging time, parents are reminded to please contact the school following a positive case of Covid-19 or where children/ families are isolating. We continue to apply Covid mitigations throughout the school and where a cluster is identified in a particular class, a letter from the PHA will be issued. Thank you.

We are an Integrated Primary and Nursery School in Ballymena, originally founded by a group of parents working with the Northern Ireland Council for Integrated Education. The school has now grown to an enrolment of over 300 pupils and delivers the full Northern Ireland Revised Curriculum. We aim to provide a welcoming and encouraging environment where the children become active and interested learners. We welcome children from a wide range of backgrounds and help them to grow up together in the school.

School Creed

This is our school
Let peace dwell here
Let the room be full of contentment
Let love abide here
Love of one another
Love of mankind
Love of life itself and love of God
Let us remember
that as many hands build a house
so many hearts make a school.
